The Power Macintosh 7600 was a PowerPC 604 based desktop computer sold by Apple Computer in three speeds (120 MHz, 132 MHz and 200 MHz - the last model was not available in North America) between April 1996 and November 1997. The 7600 was essentially a Power Macintosh 7500 with a different CPU card, the change in model number occurring because of the move from the 7500's PPC601 to the 7600's PPC604. Like the 7500, it included advanced Audio-Video ports including RCA audio in and out, S-Video in, composite video in and standard Apple video ports. It was eventually replaced by the Power Macintosh 7300, one of the very few times that Apple updated a computer but gave it a lower model number - the reason is that the 7300 was a joint replacement for the 7600 and the Power Macintosh 7200.

The 7600 features the easy-access outrigger desktop case first introduced with the Power Macintosh 7200.
